Methodology WG1

The methodology working group considers the different ways in which method discourses and practical operations interact to co-produce situated enquiries. The basic premise of our work is that there are genealogies of method discourse other than the Cartesian (and Diltheyan), and that method talk can have utility without producing claims for universality nor proposing familiar dichotomies of subject/object – theory/practice – means/ends – reason/unreason etc.

Members of the working group include:
Prof. Mick Wilson (Hdk-Valand, Univ. of Gothenburg) WG1 Contact
Dr. Maddie Leach (Hdk-Valand, Univ. of Gothenburg)
Martin McCabe (School of Media, TU Dublin)
